Get ready to experience a beautiful period piece unlike any other. We’re excited to announce that The Heike Story will arrive on Funimation as part of the Fall 2021 anime season, an entire season ahead of its broadcast in Japan!
From studio Science SARU (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) and director Naoko Yamada, The Heike Story draws inspiration from the original story THE TALE OF THE HEIKE, written by Hideo Furukawa.
But that’s not all. The iconic Reiko Yoshida serves as composer, with music by Kensuke Ushio. The series stars voice actors Aoi Yuki as Biwa and Takahiro Sakurai as Taira no Shigemori.
We also have your first look at the series via a trailer and a beautifully mysterious teaser visual. We cannot wait to share more of The Heike Story with you when it arrives on Funimation on September 15!
